Mayor Bill de Blasio’s statement that the city is terminating contracts with the Trump organization may need an asterisk.
Three of the four contracts identified by de Blasio were due to expire in April, Politico said.
De Blasio called Wednesday’s announcement a moralistic response to Trump’s incitement to the mob that attacked the Capitol last week.
“In light of this crime, the city of New York has determined that it is in our power to terminate all agreements with the Trump organization,” de Blasio told a news conference. “So goodbye to Trump’s organization.” We have no business with you. “
The contracts cover a golf course in the Bronx, a carousel in Central Park and two ice rinks run by the Trump organization.
Politico states that the carousel contract was to expire on April 9 and the rink contract was to expire on April 30.
However, the golf course contract lasts until April 30, 2032.
“The City of New York has no legal right to terminate our contracts, and if they choose to continue, they will owe Trump the organization more than $ 30 million,” Eric Trump said in a statement to Politico.
The city said it would deliver a notice of termination this week. Years ago, his lawyers sought a legal basis for terminating Trump’s contracts, but decided against him.
